Loris Karius started in the Champions League final last month following an impressive second half of the 2017-18 season.

The German shot stopper made two mistakes in a 3-1 loss to Spanish giants Real Madrid in the Champions League showpiece.

Liverpool FC have been linked with a move to sign AS Roma’s Brazil international in recent months.
